How bad it’s become

June 30th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Ah, the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse sorely needs some attention. Look at what has happened to California LemonHead: One spike missing on her head; her Lucky the Bear Pendant fallen off; her bloomers fallen down and the only resting place she can find is Sydney’s rear quarters. PLUS, just this weekend, I had to […]

The last day in June

June 30th, 2010 · No Comments

I remember just yesterday it was the first day in June and I was thinking of my sophomore English teacher and the memorization of “What is so rare as a day in June . . .” She was probably younger than I am now and we thought she was old. Probably very nice- looking in […]

End of an era

June 27th, 2010 · No Comments

Over 50 years ago my grandmother casually stuck a willow branch in the ground and it grew. A lot. I pulled into the yard Friday and it was down, the victim of the tornado or tornado-like winds that came threw the area. SIGH Cameron, Summer and Alison with remaining trunk in background. After the shutter […]

Back

June 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Back in the electronic media age – Serious internet outage; tornado; tree across road; tornado; giant willow down on deck at Mother’s; internet outage continuation. Finally, resolution . . . but guess what? Der Bingle had rented a chain saw because he finds the idea of the giant willow too tempting to not varooooom .  […]

LCD vs. optical viewfinder (Canon, listen up)

June 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment

It seems that just about every darn camera is omitting viewfinders from their point and shoots – even the travel zooms, which by definition just might be used in bright sunlight. The argument is that the LCD is so good you don’t need it. I happened upon this place and I am going to show […]

Right smack in the middle of the day

June 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

I have a regularly scheduled quarterly appointment in Fort Wayne at 1 pm today. It is a fifteen minute in and out doctor thing.  And it’s in the middle of the day. Why can’t this guy be in his office in the morning? Huh? Is he not aware that AmeliaJake has things to do on […]

Not a sharp stick in the eye

June 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

No, it was a sharp stick just below the tear duct corner of my eye. I was walking under the willow when whatever happened happened so fast that all I can remember is a stunning pain in the corner of my eye and my glasses no longer on my face. I suspect my glasses deflected […]

If I were Grover . . .

June 21st, 2010 · 2 Comments

Let’s assume I am a blue furry creature named Grover. Well, right now, I would be saying, “I am soooo embarrassed,” just like he did when he came to the last page of The Monster at the End of This Book. I, the Psuedo-Grover, along with Summer (who does not have an alias to hide […]

Shane again

June 20th, 2010 · No Comments

Shortly after I posted the pictures of Shane without his Elizabethan collar following his neutralization procedure, he started bothering his tiny incision. We had to put the cone on him. Shane does not take easily to the cone; in fact, he has trouble functioning. Last evening as I stood at the kitchen sink, I heard […]
